This is one of my larger drawings, 11×14″. The copic markers I used to color most of it bled over borders and liquified dried india ink on the witch’s body. Valuable lessons learned here. Anyway, happy Halloween, everyone!
A couple of years ago, I suggested to my friend Jeffrey Thomas that he might use one of my drawings for inspiration to write a story. As it turned out, it became a long story entitled “The Cyclops,” though my drawing encompassed a small part of it. Still, it is a fine, weird and melancholy tale, and I’m proud to have played a small part in it.
You can find Jeffrey Thomas’s work, where this story was serialized, on his Patreon page.
She first drew my notice in Peter Jackson’s wonderful tale of true crime, Heavenly Creatures. She subsequently stole my heart in Titanic. In Little Children, she wound up thoroughly owning a part of me.
